NASCAR at Watkins Glen picks, odds: Kyle Busch going for weekend sweep

Who takes the checkered flag?

Here are our picks for the season’s last road race.

Winner: Kyle Busch
After shooting his first checkered flag of the season a week at Pocono, rowdy is out for blood. After winning his first Xfinity Series race at The Glen on Saturday, Busch begins in the pole on Sunday as he chases his third career win in the track. From our point of view, as long as Busch does not mess or see his motor fail, he must at least finish in the top five.

Contenders: Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr..
We are simply not prepared to give up about the 2016 championship event, particularly after his second-place finish in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race. Logano marched his whole Cup team out on Saturday and they didn’t disappoint. His team knows it’s win or go home, so expect the 2015 Watkins Glen winner to take his shot Victory Lane on Sunday. In terms of Truex Jr., nicely his r??sum?? speaks for itself. The points leader possesses 14 stage wins, three race wins, eight top-fives and a ridiculous 29 playoff points. Truex Jr. led the most complete laps in Sonoma in June prior to fighting engine failure with just 25 to go. Best believe he hasn’t forgotten about that…

Wild Card: AJ Allmendinger
We’re not very high on the road course expert back at Sonoma, and for good reason. Allmendinger finished 35th despite winning a stage in June. This time around we think it’s going to differ. Despite a fair run in practice, Allmendinger’s results at Watkins Glen talk for themselves. In addition to a win in 2014, he’s got a normal finish inside the top 10 there. Do not be shocked if Allmendinger plays spoiler into a motorist on the playoff bubble Sunday.
